Street Portrait - Barcelona (Tue 06 Aug 2013)

Robert Heinlein (*) is quoted (*):
Whatever our calling, whether we are scientists, engineers, poets, public servants, or parents, we all live in a complex, and ever-changing world, and all of us deserve what's in this toolbox: critical thinking skills; knowledge (*) of the past (*) and other cultures (*); an ability to work with and interpret numbers and statistics; access to the insights of great writers and artists; a willingness to experiment, to open up to change (*); and the ability to navigate ambiguity (*).
via An MIT Dean's Defense of the Humanities (*) by AthanasiusKircher (*).
